KidCoder Beginning Web Design Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Did you ever wonder how websites, games, and smart-phone apps created by people who made their living from these? Have you in your wildest dream, thought of creating apps and designing your own website?

Well, your dream is about to come true.  Even your kids as young as 4th graders can design his/her own website.

In this modern, technology jammed times, a know-how is definitely an advantage. Having the knowledge will not only make one a mere user of technology, but a creator.  Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs are creators who made it really big.

  1. I’m an advocate for kids learning how to program early. It all started with my eldest showing flair in it at a very young age then eventually finding myself in the web industry. I actually signed up for a programming course in coursera so I can keep up with my kid who’s moving up from Scratch programming to javascript and robotics this school year. We’re using Khan Academy this year for these courses this year but there’s free curriculum in code.org. too. But I’m piqued by this curriculum. I’ll look into it and talk it over with my hubby. 🙂
